Sony Teases More The Last Of Us Part 2 for Next Week's State of Play

Sony Teases More The Last Of Us Part 2 for Next Week's State of Play

Naughty Dog wants us all to tune in next week.

We know that Sony's next State of Play presentation won't be focused on the next PlayStation, but it will feature a PlayStation 4 title we haven't seen or heard much about in a while: Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Part 2.

On Twitter, Naughty Dog posted a tease for Part 2's involvement in the State of Play livestream scheduled for September 24 at 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT. Sony's announcement says the company is preparing a "pretty hefty show, weighing in at around 20 minutes" and will include "new game reveals"—so while we will be seeing something about The Last of Us Part 2, it won't take up the full presentation. We could still get an update on Sony's other elusive exclusive Ghost of Tsushima, along with information on other upcoming titles and content for other games from PlayStation Worldwide Studios.

Sony's also saying there won't be updates on its next-gen plans in this State of Play, which tracks with Sony's confirmation that The Last of Us Part 2 is still planned for the PS4.

We've not seen or heard much of The Last of Us Part 2 since Sony's E3 2018 presentation, but Naughty Dog has dropped hints throughout 2019 about development nearing the finish line. In April, director Neil Druckmann revealed that Naughty Dog finished filming the game's last scene. About a month later, Naughty Dog posted new job listings "to help [the studio] close out" development on the game.

Perhaps we'll get a release date out of Sony's presentation, or at least more details on the NPC companion who will accompany Ellie throughout the game. For more on everything we have heard about the game's development, its story, and the harsh combat, check out our guides page for the game.
